Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Let’s talk zucchini bread.

It comes in quite a few varieties: chocolate chip zucchini bread, zucchini banana bread, lemon zucchini bread, zucchini bread with pineapple… the list goes on and on. Today, I’m bringing you blueberry zucchini bread.

Zucchini is one of those great ingredients that you can add to a lot of different baked goods – breads, muffins, brownies – to incorporate an extra (secret) dose of greens with no one the wiser. One time, a friend of mine claimed there was no way I could add zucchini to brownies without him knowing; a few weeks later, I did and he ate about half the pan before I told him they indeed contained two full zucchinis 😛

This recipe is super easy for those times when you’re in the mood for something freshly baked, but with minimal effort (only one mixing bowl required for this recipe!)

Mixed Berry Ricotta Cake

It is cold. This morning when I woke up, it was “feels like 11°F” outside. And yes, the “feels like” is important – one thing I definitely learned when moving to NYC is the effect of the wind in making winter all the more bitterly cold. In my first studio apt, I could literally hear it howling outside around the corner as it gusted through the street.

So. What better way to remedy the cold than staying indoors with a nice slice of warm berry ricotta cake?

The cake is so light and fresh, you could eat it for breakfast with a cup of tea (or coffee), late afternoon treat, or evening dessert! Find this great recipe by Lauren at Climbing Grier Mountain here.

And stay warm!
